Dr. Stephanie Wood will give a presentation about the open-access digital collection called ¡Presente! Art and the Disappeared at the JSMA on March 10, 2017. Prof. Carlos Aguirre will provide an introduction.
Stephanie Wood (Center for Equity Promotion, College of Education) and Carlos Aguirre (History), along with June Black (formerly of the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art), are three members of the Center for Latino/a and Latin American Studies “Research Action Project for Human Rights in Latin America” who have undertaken research into the intersection of art and human rights in Latin America, with research funds provided by CLLAS. Before her move to Idaho, June Black laid the groundwork for several museum visits and created guidelines for selecting and approaching works of art. In winter term 2016 Dr. Wood visited Mexico and the University of Essex in the U.K. The latter has an outstanding collection of art works in this vein. In mid-2016 Prof. Aguirre visited museums and memory sites in Argentina and Chile, taking more photographs and gathering relevant materials for study.
One offshoot of this research has been the development of an open-access digital collection called ¡Presente! Art and the Disappeared, the subject of a presentation that will take place at the JSMA on March 10, 2017. The collection, which is growing monthly as more permissions come in, involves the close study of details of works of art in a variety of mediums, such as photographs, prints, posters, textiles, sculptures, and installations. Research assistance and translation work that is making the site bilingual (English/Spanish) has been provided by Melanie Hyers and Jesús León-Monsalve (of CEQP); undergraduate assistants Colin Takeo and Connor Shields are working to process images and build the searchable database. › Continue reading
